With The Time Fairy, Florenca Kapitzky Takes the Stress Out of Vacations

(Via ZEXPR) When a family stands in front of the Eiffel Tower, they will smile for the camera and capture that moment for years to come. However, photos don’t tell the whole story of a vacation. “In my experience, that family had to go through weeks of painstaking research, phone calls, emails, and more to get there,” says Flor Kapitzky, owner of the luxury concierge business The Time Fairy. “There’s a lot of stress they’re under that the photos aren’t capturing. That’s why I formed my business: to help people experience vacations as they are meant to be.”

The millionaires, CEOs, and celebrities that Flor works with are impressed by her ability to craft trips that are spectacular. “It doesn’t matter if you want to stay in an exclusive hotel in Beijing or travel in a luxury train across Italy,” she says. “I get it done, and my clients always go in the style they deserve. Best of all, they do it without any stress because I take all of the hassle out of their vacations.”

Before Flor became a highly sought-after trip planner, she worked at the Ministry Public Federal in Brazil after she graduated from law school. “It wasn’t my passion, though,” she says, remembering. “I wanted to do something more creative, so I then became a very successful owner of a jewelry company called Kapitzky. I enjoyed this, but I sold it to an investor so that I wouldn’t compete with their business. I was still drawn to the creative side of life, so I  went to Hollywood, where I was in a movie. I am now a model. Oh, and I am studying real estate. I am interested in everything and am very ambitious!” she says, laughing a little. “Everything about the world fascinates me.”

Flor is a very positive person, and she ultimately turned to the luxury travel industry because it seemed like the perfect chance to use her career to make people happy. “That’s really what I do,” she says. “I pour all of my energy into creating trips that will give my clients a lifetime of memories. All they have to do is call me, and I take care of everything.”

The customized trips that Flor creates start with her choosing the destination. “The world is a big place, of course,” Flor says. “Just choosing where to go can be intimidating enough for a lot of people, so I ask the right questions, get to know my clients, and pinpoint where they would like to go. They’re always surprised by how well I do.”

Flor then really gets to work. She meticulously plans out itineraries, focusing on all the little details that make good trips sensational. “I’m the one you rely on to get those tickets to a concert that no one else can find,” she says. “If you want a private house on a beach in Tahiti, I can reserve that, too. I use the connections I’ve got around the world to create a trip no other luxury concierge can provide.”

The itineraries are not set in stone, however. One reason Flor is so appreciated by her clients is because of how flexible she is. “If you wake up one morning and suddenly don’t feel like touring Paris’ museums and instead want to do something completely different, I’ll set it up for you,” Flor says. “You always have the freedom to change your mind when the mood suits you.” At the end of the trip, when her clients return, Flor loves to hear about the wonderful time they had.

Flor has attained a high level of success with The Time Fairy, and she likes to use it to give back to others. “I love supporting two children in Africa through Child Fund,” she says. “It reminds me that no matter how far I get in my career, it’s important to use it to help those who need it.”

She also likes to support other entrepreneurs who are just starting out. “I know from my own life that the road new business owners are on is not easy. I tell them what I told myself so often in the beginning: never give up on your dreams. The Time Fairy may be successful now, but it was a little rough in the beginning just like it is with any new company. I kept at it, I did not give up, and I am now a premier luxury concierge.”

That commitment to growing The Time Fairy into a highly respected luxury concierge business has given Flor her excellent reputation. “My clients know that I am with them from start to finish,” she says. “I do not rest until they have returned from their trips, rejuvenated and satisfied.”
